President Obama’s vacation on Martha’s Vineyard officially ends on Sunday, August 23, but that’s not going to stop him from making another trip to another hot tourist destination.
Hours after Obama returns to Washington D.C. it appears he will hop back aboard Air Force One for another trip to Las Vegas.
According to the Las Vegas Review Journal, President Obama will be the keynote speaker at the National Clean Energy Summit on Monday, August 24. The president will likely use his speech to tout his record of government subsidies for solar and wind power and hybrid vehicles and call for more spending on alternative sources of energy.
Next week’s event will be Obama’s eighteenth trip to Nevada as president, according to the Review Journal, the most of any sitting U.S. president.
It is unclear whether the president will play golf while in the city. But he has plans to attend a fundraiser for Catherine Cortez Masto, according to the Las Vegas Sun.
Masto is the Democratic candidate running to replace Harry Reid in the U.S. Senate. Reid plans to retire in 2017.
